Japanese architect Kengo Kuma created a beautiful 'Floating Kitchen' art installation for the 'Venice Architecture Biennale.' The artwork is featured as part of the 'Across Chinese Cities – China House Vision’ exhibition. In an interview with freelance writer Laura Sattin, the artist professed that he wanted his work to demonstrate the diverse cultures with China by aggregating various daily items into the installation. The artist felt it was important to bring the kitchen to life, which he believes is a start contrast to modern-day kitchens. To simulate life through daily kitchen items, the artist literally used pots and pans to build up the walls and physical areas of the room, varying from sharp and solid walls people are used to.

The art installation is thought-provoking and creative in its nature. The Floating Kitchen changes the perspective of architecture by using inanimate daily kitchen items to build a standing structure. Photo Credits: designboom, kkaa.co.jp
